From energy consumption to waste generation, there are many opportunities to reduce the health system’s significant environmental footprint and chart a path toward sustainability. With their lived experience of impacting health system transformation, patients and caregivers have a key role to play in co-designing approaches to health care delivery that benefit both patients and the environment.

You are invited to join us for a half-day symposium hosted by IHPME’s Committee on the Environment, Climate Change and Sustainability and Patient Engagement Committee featuring Canadian and international keynote speakers from the patient engagement and environmental sustainability communities, and breakout sessions to discuss sustainability challenges and opportunities.

The Health Care Sustainability and Patient Engagement Symposium will offer attendees a chance to engage with and learn from one another as we issue a call to action for environmentally sustainable health systems with patients as partners for change.

Keynote Speakers:

Rachel Stancliffe – Founder and Director of the Centre for Sustainable Health Care, UK

Emily Nicholas Angl – Independent Patient Advisor, Director of Health Engagement and Communications, Reframe Health Lab

Lunch: 12 pm – 12:30 pm
Wine and Cheese: 5:00 pm – 6:00 pm
Full schedule coming soon!
